PSE welcomes Buckley's homes and businesses to our natural gas service

A guide to your Puget Sound Energy natural gas service

Key information

  • On June 26, 2014, Puget Sound Energy acquired the natural gas system from the City of Buckley. PSE now is providing natural gas service to the homes and businesses in the City of Buckley.
  • Reminder! This Saturday, August 2, PSE will be in Zone 3 replacing natural gas meters. Call the project team to schedule a preferred time to have your meter replaced.

    Meter Replacements

    Beginning in mid-July, PSE will begin residential natural gas meter replacements. Natural gas customers are encouraged to contact the PSE project team (see contact informaton at right) to schedule an appointment during their assigned meter replacement day, see below for individual zone information. Please be sure to keep your natural gas meter clear of debris, landscaping bark, shrubs or other vegetation.

    Beginning July 7, PSE’s natural gas servicemen will work one-on-one with our natural gas business customers to schedule meter replacements.

    Project Overview

    The City of Buckley on June 26 transferred its natural gas operating and distribution system to Puget Sound Energy. The last bill for natural gas from the City of Buckley will be included in the city’s statement issued June 30. PSE’s first bill for natural gas service will be included as a combined PSE electric and natural gas statement, scheduled to arrive around July 26.

    The transfer represents seven months of planning that followed last November’s general election when Buckley voters overwhelmingly approved the sale of the city’s 57-year-old natural gas utility to PSE, which also serves electricity to Buckley.

    Safety

    At PSE, we know our customers, employees and the communities we serve expect to live and work around a safe and reliable natural gas system. Safety is our top priority when it comes to designing, constructing, operating and maintaining the natural gas system serving more than 770,000 PSE customers. When operating our system, we meet or exceed strict federal and state safety requirements related to pipeline safety. Click here for more information on natural gas safety.

    How does natural gas get to my home or business?

    Natural gas is a fossil fuel composed almost entirely of methane. Interstate pipelines transport natural gas to regional natural gas systems, where it is metered and delivered through a network of local mains, service lines and, ultimately, to customer homes and businesses.
